In my domain - a Windows 2003 one - All client are in the same OU -
What happens is that everybody who login the computer, get access to all users folders, with no restriction- How can I change this?
It doesn't matter is the OS is WXP or W7 everybody get access to others users profile folders in the computer under C:\Users\username folder. I want to avoid this.
Thanks
Lucia

Are they all domain admins?  What kind of rights do they have currently and what security groups are they a member of?

Ok, if i remove the domain account from the local Admin group, it works. But I really need domain users be set as Local Admins for their comptuer. And I want to avoid they get access to everybody get access to others users profile folders in the computer under C:\Users\username folder. Can I do this via GPO?

If they are local admins - they have full access to the machine including user profiles.

I hoped I could manage that differently via GPO, but received no clue about it.
